Most of us know or have heard about THE LORD’S PRAYER, which starts like this : “Our Father Who art in Heaven ………” Here is A SON’S PRAYER, somewhat on the same lines.
Our father, who lives back home
We uphold your name
Let your family expand
Let your ways be done, wherever we go
Even as they are at home.
Give us today what we need the most
And forgive us our mistakes
Even as we forgive our brothers, sisters and friends
Lead us not into bitter lessons
But save us from harm.
For your family, you are the authority
The strength and the reputation
For me and my children
And their children’s children thereafter
And so it is, Amen.
